I am currently a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at UNC-Charlotte supervised by Dr. Jing Xiao. I completed my undergraduate studies at UNCC in 2012 and entered the PhD program in Fall 2013. I am a member of the Robotics Lab where I am studying real-time robot motion planning.

I was born and raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I attended both Fayetteville Technical Community College and Appalachian State University before finding home at UNC-Charlotte.

Outside of computer science, I like to spend my time playing games, reading, watching movies and tv, and learning new things as often as possible.
